The SAA Archaeological Record Cover - Sept. 2015
Field School Featured on Archaeological Record Cover

The Slocan Narrows Archaeological Project, directed by Associate Professor of Anthropology Nathan Goodale and Visiting Instructor of Anthropology Alissa Nauman, was featured in a photograph on the September cover of the Society for American Archaeology (SAA) publication The SAA Archaeological Record. Pictured on the cover is the excavation at a 2,600-year-old pithouse at the project site located in southeastern British Columbia with field school students Anna Arnn ’17, Mariah Walzer ’17 and Michael Graeme (Selkirk College/University of Victoria).    More ...

Elisabeth MacColl '16
Elisa MacColl ’16 Publishes in Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics

Elisabeth MacColl ’16 is on a career path that fortuitously started with a Cellular Neurobiology class she took at Hamilton with Professor of Biology Herm Lehman. The latest outcome is her publication of a paper in the Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics. The paper, “Matrix Metalloproteinases as Regulators of Vein Structure and Function Implications in Chronic Venous Disease,” was written by MacColl and the PI Dr. Raouf A. Khalil of Harvard Medical School/Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston.  More ...

Jack Gallant
Was This Your Card?

Few people have trouble visually distinguishing a desk chair from a moving car, or the sounds of a crying baby and crashing waves. But could brain activity alone allow researchers to determine what novel stimuli a participant heard or saw? Although the proposition sounds more akin to a science-fiction blockbuster than a scientific possibility, Jack Gallant, of the Gallant Lab at UC Berkeley, has spent decades focused on answering this question.  More ...

Lillia McEnaney ’17 Explores Possible Archaeology Career Through Summer Internships

This summer, Lillia McEnaney ’17 split her time excavating a Greek island and making three-dimensional models of stone inscriptions in Macedonia.  McEnaney was a field volunteer at Despotiko, a late archaic to early classical sanctuary to the Greek God Apollo in the middle of the Cycladic islands. She then participated in a field school at a Balkan Heritage Foundation course in Macedonia.  More ...

Collins '17 and Dennis '18 Create New Computer Programming Language

As many who have tried computer coding know, the introductory languages used in the field can often be difficult to approach and unintuitive. It is with this in mind that Eric Collins ’17 and Alex Dennis ’18 with Associate Professor of Computer Science Alistair Campbell, are this summer creating a new programming language called CSPy geared specifically toward beginners.  More ...

New tenure-track appointments are Catherine Beck, geosciences; Farah Dawood, chemistry; Cynthia Downs, biology; Quincy Newell, religious studies; and Javier Pereira, economics.  More ...

Steve Laurent Cunden '18 works on a robotic arm.
Building a Better Robot

Steven Laurent Cunden ’18 is this summer helping to further develop the robotics technologies used in the Physics 245 course, Electronics and Computers. Cunden is working with the class instructor, Associate Professor of Physics Brian Collet, on enabling the relatively simplistic robotic arms used in the course to receive and react to positional feedback.  More ...

Thomas Hoffman ’16 Adds Discovery to Hamilton Intro. Physics Labs

When people recall what they enjoyed most about science classes – whether  in college, high school or even earlier – chances are they remember hands-on experiments and the excitement of discovering something new for themselves. This element of discovery is important to Thomas Hoffman ’16 and Adam Lark, director of physics laboratories. The two are working together to add more discovery-based elements to introductory physics labs on campus, hoping to improve the learning experience for physics students.  More ...

Hayley Goodrich ’17 Looks into Binocular Rivalry in Neuroscience Research

Hayley Goodrich ’17 is replicating 2015 graduate Carly Poremba’s senior neuroscience thesis this summer in the hopes of contributing to the academic literature and research agenda surrounding binocular rivalry. Goodrich’s project, titled the Binocular Rivalry Study, seeks to test the efficacy of Poremba’s thesis conclusions regarding the postdictive effects of a later stimulus on a previously subconsciously processed stimulus.  More ...

Alex Jones '16
Alex Jones ’16 Investigates Effects of Vitamin C on Metabolism

This summer, Alex Jones ’16 is conducting an important research project to better understand how vitamin C affects growth and development. He is working with Professor of Biology Herm Lehman to study what role vitamin C plays in the metabolism of Manduca sexta, a kind of hornworm that is frequently used in scientific experiments. Jones and Lehman’s research this summer is one part of an ongoing project to determine how exactly vitamin C is necessary for growth and development.  More ...
